I have been to a couple of other Cellars and their beer selection can be a bit sketchy as far as selection and quality goes. But this store is a definate improvement. Not that the service was anything more than greating you at the door and checking out. A wide selection of regional craft beers that expands beyond their other stores. The import selection was a bit underwhelming however. They did have some pretty good sales on regional beers. I did not see any prices out of the ordinary on other beers. If I was seeking out something out of the ordinary, I would probably travel farther down the road, but as an every day store, this would fit the bill.

A real dump with no service I think you would do better elsewhere. There is a little store on Robert Street in South St. Paul near Cub foods just north of 494 that is excellent. If you are looking for the best price on everyday beer, Morelli's in St. Paul is the best I have found.

Cellars is my go to store for beer. They have a great selection and are always willing to help out with what's new in the store. There are a number of staff that are craft beer drinkers too, so I can rely on their opinion for beer I haven't tried. They also will let me know when new things are coming in, so I can plan what days I need to stop in!
Prices generally tend to be in line with other stores in the area (Blue Max, Apple Valley Munis), and occasionally they have really good sale prices on 6 packs.
They also have a make your own 6 pack shelf, and in general are willing to break up existing 6 packs if you only want 1 or 2 bottles of something.
I highly recommend Cellars in Eagan if you are in the area!

I have nothing but great things to say about Jason and his staff at the Cellars, in Eagan. I have been buying beer, wine, and spirits here since I moved to Burnsville in 2008.
Always great selection and they often include Beer Advocate (and Rate Beer) ratings next to beer. Also offer a monthly (or so) email distribution dedicated to releases, tastings, and other beer news. Staff are more than knowledgeable and always willing to help with a courteous attention to the customers likes and dislikes.
Would recomend to anyone in the area, and anyone within the metro. A+ service.

They have a decent selection, but prices are way too high. You can easily get the same beers at other places around the cities cheaper.
Their 4 pks and 6 pks were a few dollars higher then I have seen at other places.
Bombers are a buck or two more as well.
I'll go there if I am in the Eagan area and need beer, but that's about it.

Located just off of Cedar and Cliff in a strip mall. Went here for their wine sale and stumbled upon a very good beer selection. One large side of the eisle is refrigerated beers and on the other side shelves of craft/micro brews. In between are seasonals they carry. A pretty small and limited make your own six pack section. The guy I talked with was very knowledgable and helpful. Their selection would be second to only Blue Max for the area. Prices seem to be par for the course. If in the area, a good choice for beer shopping.

Located on Cliff road in Eagan near Highway 77. I often visit this liquor store when looking for a better selection of beer. The selection of beer is pretty good, maybe not the best I have ever seen but they usually have what I am looking for. They are always trying to get new releases in and do a pretty good job. There are several knowledgeable employees who work there that you could talk about beer with for hours. They always let me know what they have in that is new and give great recommendations. The only problem is most of the beer is on shelves and is not refrigerated, though for many of the beers this is not a problem. If you are in the south metro I recommend checking this place out.

Stopped in during a lunch hour and perused this rather extensive beer selection. As has previously been stated, the beer is tucked away in the back of the store, but the walk back isn't scary, don't worry!
A wall was dedicated to coolers of beer, ranging from BMC to the more standard big craft brewers. Across from the coolers, a large shelf carried innumerable 6-packs and bombers of American and imported craft beers. Overall, pretty impressive. A separate shelf (which almost seemed like an afterthought) provided a selection of 12 oz. singles for make your own 6-packs.
I was approached, after arriving in the beer area, and asked if I needed any help. The employee was able to show me their selection, point out some new ones and recommendations, and overall knew about the beer.

I happened across this place by chance the other day. Rumor had it that the "Cellars" chain of liquor stores in the Twin Cities was good, so I had to stop in. What a great idea it was. I stopped in to find some Bitter Brewer, they had it and a whole lot more. I've been to quite a few liquor stores in the Twin Cities and I must say that this place had the best selection I've seen yet. I grabbed some Surly, Southern Tier, and Tyrenena on this trip, but they had a lot of other offerings. It would be too extensive to list here, but lets just say if they distribute it in Minnesota, this place most likely has it. The only area that was lacking just a tiny bit was the selection of Belgians. This was nothing to cry about though as they definitely had a lot of great ones. To top this all off, the staff was incredibly friendly and beer saavy. The two guys working definitely loved beer. The prices were great as well. It was $8.99 for my 4 pack of Bitter Brewer, $6.99 for the Southern Tier, and $8.99 for my 4-Pack of Devil Over a Barrel. Compared to other places I've been this was either right on or a little cheaper.
I highly recommend this place. Its too bad I don't live closer.
